London 04:51
Well you're not here for two more weeks so I re-read that email you sent me before you left and I don't really know you Oh, but I want to... If I get drunk and stupid might say something foolish but i still don't think i'll ever shake this thing while... You're in London You're in London You're in London And I guess your cell phone, it don't work over there You're in London, but I don't care So you're not here, so I'm left with this song These words and sounds strung along a line and these few chords, they come in time and I go back and forth, in my mind I go back and forth, and forth and back... I’m inventing my own distractions while.... You're in London You're in London You're in London And I guess your fingers don't work over there You're in London, and I don't care so maybe you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you miss me and so you kiss somebody you kiss me and so you kiss somebody who looks like me but i'm just fine though those arms aren't mine while... You're in London You're in London You're in London And I guess your dumb heart, it don't work over there And you're in London but I don't care You're In London I'm in over my head You're in London I'm in love and You're in London and I'm in love I just might be in love But you're not here for two more weeks so I re-read that e-mail you sent me…

A Good Day 05:56
It's a good day to begin the thing that came after the thing that ended but there's nothing on TV tonight so I go to bed at 9 tomorrow is one more shot at the prize the sunlight makes me want to squint and your face is so beautiful when it's bathed in it but i've got so much on my mind right now and i want to let you in, but i don't know how but it feels right when you stay the night but i don't want to waste any more time talking on the phone when I’ve got one more shot at the prize i'm taking my next go round at life they told me that it was over, but they lied so I want my next shot at the prize And I don’t want to expect the worst it's the untaken risk that really hurts i see my second chance coming 'round the bend and I pray to god, I won't mess it up again so I try to resist all the people I miss as this fear rushes in but you know I'm finally resolved I’ve got to take it all on the chin to get in my next shot at the prize I’m taking my next go ‘round at life… they told me that it, it was over, but they lied and I'm so glad that I'm here tonight ‘cuz I want one more… shot at the prize it's a good day to begin...

I know how to sing I know how to bring myself to whatever is unfolding I know how to let go of what is getting going I know how to try I know how to lie to myself when I'm in my bed at night I know how to drown swimming against your tide And five years on, I belong to no one Chorus Because I know how to run and I know how to fall then I know how to feel nothing at all I know how love where I'm going more than where I'm coming from yeah, I know how to run And I know that you love me I know that I love you, too Especially when you do all the things I want you to I know that you're the closest one who's come to breaking through Oh, but ten years on, I'm still not the one Chorus I know how to run, run, run, run Bridge Phone numbers stuffed into my pockets Bird flying off my window sill And no matter how far I can rocket out of here I will fear just standing still Chorus I know how to run I know how to hide I know how to feel nothing inside I know how to love what's possible more than what's done I know how to run Yeah, I know how to run I know how to run, run, run, run, Run, run, run, run, run I know how to run

you don't call me and I panic expectation meets semantics and I start looking for the holes growing up has never been this tough you could never reassure me enough this terror, well, it comes and goes Chorus but one of these days, I’ll be alright the past won't replay this time and one of these nights in the blink of an eye I’ll be la di da da de di da la di da di da di da if i believe it, then I’ll see it when good enough's alone, i leave it and some would say I’m real bad news because once i win it, it already starts to dim and I can't feel it, although I'm in it and i don't even trust the truth Chorus Bridge i can't avoid the crash, Don't know how to make this last i can only touch it as it passes and i can't compare you it's not fair to all the others who even on their best days weren't you... they weren't you.... they weren't la di de da di de da you, you, you, you but one of these days i'll be alright the past won't replay this time and one of these nights in the blink of an eye i’ve gotta be la di da da de di da la di da di da di da

Matinée 04:18
Are you afraid of love or are you in it? A vampire in reverse you never let the night in It's your movie and, god, you love acting in it In two hours, we play out all the scenes Like some kind of afternoon un-dress rehearsing The climax, the denouement and the ambiguous ending I think I've seen this one before I think I’ve seen this one before Chorus When reality pulls me down somehow you know that's just the time to come around We break the rules, seize the day, you steal my crown, but I give it away... and I will be your matinée A trail of clothes that leads to an empty room A trail of lies that leads to an emptier truth A trail of tears when they find out what we've been up to I think I've seen this one before I think I’ve seen this one before Chorus Bridge And no one wants to play the part of the fool But no one wants to choose Chorus
8.
The bar closes down at 2 a.m. You come home at 3, smell like smoke and gin I have to be at work at 6 You say you weren’t thinking, Oh, again… Chorus How long can I insist That The world is flat? We have sex, but we don’t kiss We got lots of love, but we don’t make it And I guess that’s just the way it is A real life made by faking it Oh, again… Chorus And how long can you insist That The world is flat? And how long can I insist That the world is flat Bridge I keep thinking things will change as things often do But I know that’s just insane, When I’ve got all these years of proof… Your mother's in town so we have to do all the things we're supposed to do Our neighbor plays his music loud, and you don't know what I'm talking about it's over and I'm out Chorus And how long can we insist That The world is flat Most of all, it’s just sad That What we had is gone

Happy 04:08
It’s early morning, in the kitchen We had a late night And the neighbors won’t stop bitchin’ But it’s alright We could walk down by the river see what we see We could be each other’s forgiver Just like a family Chorus ‘I Love You’ rolls right off your tongue It’s easy Like you’ve never been hurt by anyone There’s a secret I’ve been keeping deep inside of me I think I could be so happy… We watch a movie, curled on the sofa It’s some stupid thing Then some friends call, invite us over We let the phone ring We eat dinner at the table Talk over everything I’d stay forever if I was able Just you and me… Chorus ‘I Love You’ rolls right off your tongue It’s easy Like you’ve never been hurt by anyone There’s no lesson in this sadness that’s been haunting me You know, I think I could be happy Bridge You make me chamomile tea before bed I listen to your late night stories ‘til my eyes are red You read books, I play guitar It’s so simple ‘cuz I love who you are… And ‘I Love You’ rolls right off my tongue It’s easy Like I’ve never been hurt by anyone There’s no lesson in this sadness that’s been haunting me Oh no, I think I could be so happy I think I could be … happy If I met you, I could be so happy Are you out there? Are you out there? Are you out there? Are you..? Are you out there? Are you out there? Are you happy? Because if we met, I bet we could be happy

about

Starred Review: "These consoling tracks, built on acoustic guitar, speak to what happens in the quietest hours." -- Stephen Sears, Instinct Magazine

Produced by Grammy-winning Clay Cook (Zac Brown Band, John Mayer collaborations etc.), "Never Regret the Nights" is the second CD by contemporary troubadour Lucas Miré.

Marrying head and heart, Miré's sophomore effort eschews the folktronica/pop touches of his debut, and finds him taking a more organic approach to another batch of highly personal songs. Lyrically driven and melodic, "Never Regret the Nights" is a clear expression of the modern/urban folk aesthetic.

2006 OutMusic Award nominee for Outstanding Male Debut, "Forever's Not As Long As It Used To Be"

Voted Best of Gay Atlanta in the Male Musician category by readers of Southern Voice 2007

"Miré's smooth voice and intimate lyrics break your heart and then heal it, all in the same phrase. -- Jennifer Vanasco, nationally syndicated columnist

"What's evident is that Miré's strengths lie in his songwriting. As a lyricist, he cuts deeply and honestly into the maelstrom of angst and pain that color intimate relationships. And the candor is frequently startling." -- New York Blade, NYC

"Lucas Miré is not your average singer-songwriter. Aside from having compelling melodies and insightful, poignant lyrics, Miré's gentle pop songs possess that special and rather rare quality - the one that makes you tune right in and eat up every word." -- Edie Carey, Singer-Songwriter

"An ascending folk-pop voice, Miré's storyteller wit is well-matched with his rich, natural baritone." -- Bill Addison, Creative Loafing, Atlanta

"Graceful melodies that are as catchy as they are insightful. Musically, it's a nice blend of cool, breezy acoustic pop/rock -- fresh but familiar at the same time. Lucas invites you to take a peek into his soul in this diary of a bright-eyed boy who's wiser than his years and has a unique perspective." -- James Cool, Madison Park

"Lucas Miré is another welcome voice on the gay male singer/songwriter circuit." -- Gregg Shapiro, Bay Area Reporter, Philly Gay News, Chicago Free Press
